In an interview with Neeti Dewan. Let’s hear her valuable insights and know more about her professional journey.
Brief us about the company, what inspired you to start the company?
The Executive Yogi – Everywhere I go, I hear from people just how much stress they have in their lives. They can’t enjoy their day-to-day lives and are torn between their careers and family. I started this company to help people regain the joy in their lives, create unparalleled success in their careers and business, and achieve financial freedom for themselves and their loved ones.

What are the products or services the company focuses on? How are your services different from those in the market?
My first book is titled “From Executive to Yogi in 60 Seconds”, and my upcoming book is “High-Level Leadership, Low-Level Stress – How to Win in Business Without Losing Your Mind.”
- Our training helps executives take control of their lives. Our focus is on learning how to manage your mind, and once you learn that, then it’s much easier to manage your job, business, family, people, situations, and anything that life springs at you. It teaches people to be bold in life and take charge of what they want to achieve in life, for themselves and others. It wasn’t this easy for me when I started her business journey. I had many stumbles and bruises before learning what works in business and in life to be successful. I now teach these success principles covered in her two books on leadership.
What are the key achievements of your business journey?
I have worked and gained experience in global tax, finance, and strategy for over two decades. I have worked for some of the largest companies like ARAMARK, KPMG, PwC, Hughes, and ClubCar.
I learned to combine the wisdom of the East with the business genius of the West to come up with a system that helps executives grow exponentially in their leadership journey.
Proceeds from the sale of my books are helping create scholarships for underprivileged girls around the world. I believe that once you educate a girl, she in turn will not only be independent, but will also take care of her family, her siblings, and others in her community.
Some of the girls I’m helping come from rural areas, and their education would never be supported by their families. I am highly focused on helping as many girls as I can to gain the currency of this world – education, which allows you to make choices about your economic growth in this global economy.
